Satellite will be the worst
option you can employ.
On your 1.5m connection, 1.5M is the maximum rate at which data can be transferred... similarly with the satellite option, 5-15mbs is the max data rate.
The other factor you're not considering is the connection latency. What that means is, everytime you send an command or request over the internet, that signal has to travel up to a satellite, down to a center, and then back. Once a constant stream is established, life is okay, but not before that. This is important because, well, everything you do is going to have a 1-5 second 'buffer' before results are returned.
Imagine using a remote desktop session where each command (move mouse, press key) is delayed by 1-5 seconds (one way!).
A client of mine has Satellite internet in a home of theirs, and remote'ing in to do any kind of support is almost impossible. I have to direct him/her what to do on screen, then wait until I see the result to tell them where to click next. A horrible connection for remote desktop services.
Humans are the only creatures that won't live up to the their potential. Give everything your all. When you die, die on E.
So I ask you, what do you intend to do now?
